Summary of "Role of Autologous Fat Injection in Neglected Patients With Anterior Plagiocephaly."

Anterior plagiocephaly is a type of non-syndromic craniosynostosis requiring surgery. In this study, the authors have presented 15 neglected patients with anterior plagiocephaly. Two of patients had moderate plagiocephaly whereas others had mild plagiocephaly. A total of 38 procedures (fat injections) were performed on these patients. Following procedures, 2 of patients were under corrected, 2 of who were over corrected, and others were adequate corrected. One of the patients developed fat necrosis. None of them showed persistent over correction. Authors believe that autologous fat transplantation is a safe and effective method, in patients with anterior plagiocephaly who have not been operated, to improve patients' appearance and, subsequently, their self-esteem as well as their social function.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The condition characterized by uneven or irregular shape of the head often in parallelogram shape with a flat spot on the back or one side of the head. It can either result from the premature CRANIAL SUTURE closure (CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS) or from external forces (NONSYNOSTOTIC PLAGIOCEPHALY).

Inflammation of the anterior uvea comprising the iris, angle structures, and the ciliary body. Manifestations of this disorder include ciliary injection, exudation into the anterior chamber, iris changes, and adhesions between the iris and lens (posterior synechiae).
